Evening Study III is part of an ongoing collection of subtly textured glass landscapes focusing on my local coastline and its differing moods.
Here on the Wirral peninsula we have the most spectacular evening light and sunsets, creating a stunning backdrop for the tidal island out in the estuary.
The glass panel is 13cm (5") square and is mounted on a 25cm (10") square white wooden panel ready to hang.
These pieces start with a collagraph printing plate; a piece of board collaged with textures which can be anything from textiles and textured papers to acrylic medium. The printing plate is then used to create a single use mould onto which glass powder is built up in layers. The layers are built up face down, working from front to back, and coloured glass in powder form is mostly greyish whatever colour it will be when fired, so to a certain extent the selection and application of the colours relies on instinct and experience.
Once there are enough layers built up the piece is backed with a sheet of glass and fired in the kiln. After firing (which typically takes around 24 hours) the edges are finished and the panel is sandblasted and sealed before mounting.
